Sean's eye is caught by Mary Kate Danaher, a beautiful but poor maiden, and younger sister of ill-tempered "Red" Will Danaher.

When John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara are first driven along the edge of the water, by Michaleen Oge Flynn, (Barry Fitzgerald), John Wayne offers to give her a lift off the trap, but Maureen O'Hara decides to jump down unaided. As this is going on, one can see the backdrop of Lough Corrib and its many and distant islands, beyond.

Father Peter Lonergan, Narrator:
Well, then. Now. I'll begin at the beginnin'. A fine soft day in the spring, it was, when the train pulled into Castletown, three hours late as usual, and himself got off. He didn't have the look of an American tourist at all about him. Not a camera on him; what was worse, not even a fishin' rod.

One of the best directed by John Ford. An emotional, humorous look at an American, played by John Wayne, going back to his native Ireland and trying to fit in with the present culture. Sensational scenery and the grand music by Victor Young support this classic among classics. Breezy and rowdy. Too beautiful to turn your back on. A great illustration of romance. The interaction between Wayne and Maureen O'Hara is magical and hard to beat.
Other classic performances are turned in by Victor McLaglen, Ward Bond and Barry Fitzgerald.
